Chihuly Installation at Kew Gardens.
Reflections of the roof of the Waterlily House at Kew Gardens reflected in the pond.

The Waterlily House was built in 1851 to house the giant waterlily (Victoria amazonica). However, the plant never fared very well there, and in 1866 the house was converted to an Economic Plant House for medicinal and culinary plants. It was restored to its current state in 1991.
